We checked the hoses, changed the thermostat, water pump, radiator, timing belt and it is still overheating. What else can be the problem. Thanks

    When it comes the the cooling system of any vehicle. There can be multiple factors that can cause the vehicle to get hot. Any leak, air in system, cooling fan operations, head gasket pressure problems and of course the electrical sensors monitoring the system. We would recommend to diagnose the system to pin point the reason for overheating and go from there.

    You would need to scan the ECM and use a temperature gun to confirm that the readings are the same. You should have both an engine temperature sensor and fan sensor (depending on your make and model).
